Wow, 93rd floor. Just a few more to go! Do you think that they will hold off on putting anymore glass until the steel tops out?

Nah. That would mean a total of about 3 or 4 months of no new glass, and I'm certain that won't happen. Though I do wish they'd pick it up just a little.

Curtain wall should restart mid march, it is stopped because fireproofing is stopped rather than heat the building, you can't count on every day being nice spring day in the winter. Patience, it will all start again soon.

Tha cladding has stopped exactly at the octagon point in the middle of the tower.

I'd rather have one very very tall building. To have the new WTC be the same height as the old one (from the roof) is kind of disappointing at first sight.
